In Ref. [6] no information was provided about the impurity concentration in the sample. We noticed, however, that the reported M∼6×1017 cm−3 for ZnO nanowires by H. Oh, J.-J. Kim, J.-O. Lee, and S. S. Kim, J. Korean Phys. Soc.58, 291 (2011), is in good agreement with our fit result. We stress, however, that we do not have specifics about the presence of surface traps in the samples used in Ref. [6], and, therefore, the actual M number can differ from our finding.

The PbS nanowires referred to in this work are not greatly influenced by surface trap states; see Ref. [5], and the follow-up work by Y. Yang, J. Li, H. Wu, E. Oh, and D. Yu, Nano Lett.12, 5890 (2012). Therefore, the M value found is a fair measure of the impurity concentration.

When the IPC data are plotted versus the incident laser power, as in Fig. 3, the slope parameter σ becomes α/(AhνinBM2) with the unit 1/W. The symbol A stands for the area of the laser spot.

It was shown in Ref. [3] that Eq. (1) holds for n- and p-type semiconductors (in the original work called excess conductor and defect conductor); i.e., M refers to the density of either ionized donors or acceptors.
